Urbalist & Moe Mentum
Officially formed in late 2000, and originally called Hybrid H. The name was derived from the diverse differences in the backgrounds and cultures between the two members, and the way that their styles worked so well together. The "H" stands for the first letter in both of their last names. The group is now reffered to simply as Urbalist & Moe Mentum. After the 2002 release of their debut LP "Out of Hybrination”, the group released their first 12” single, “2 Yutes”, along with a second 12" record single, "The Countdown" and has been recording new material since. In addition to recording Urb & Moe have been performing in New York, New Jersey, and in numerous states in the northeast. Performances include opening for major recording artists such as Erick Sermon, Keith Murray, and G-Dep. The group was also invited to perform during Legends Night in Harlem, NYC. This was an event hosted by hip-hop pioneers Kurtis Blow and Melle Mel. In September of 2005, Urbalist & Moe Mentum moved to Atlanta, GA where Urbalist opened up a full featured digital recording studio called Risk It All Records.

One half of the group formerly known as Hybrid H, Urbalist has been writing, recording and performing for a decade strong. The group is now referred to simply as Urbalist & Moe Mentum. Born in Brooklyn in 1980, he moved first to Washington D.C. at the age of three. In 1984 he moved again to New Jersey. Urbalist has always had a very creative way with words and in May of 2000, along with then college roommate Moe Mentum, officially formed a group. After moving to Providence, R.I. Urbalist became co - owner of Infinite Impact Recording studio, gaining skills as a recording engineer. Urbalist is currently living in Atlanta, Georgia and is on his grind stronger than ever before. If you live in the A then odds are youve seen him out at a club either performing or passing out cd's and networking. An emcee above and beyond all else, and aggressively pursuing a recording contract, Urbalist is also owner and head recording engineer of Risk It All Records (indie), a pro tools equipped digital recording studio

Moses "Moe Mentum" Hernandez was born and raised in the Bronx, NY. After ten rough years in the Bronx and two in Manhattan, his family decided to move out to New Jersey. It was there where Moses discovered his gift with words and at the age of 16 developed his unique style. However, he gave up rapping his senior year of high school to focus on getting into college. In September of 1999 he went off to attend college at Johnson & Wales University, where he met Jesse "The Urbalist" Hershkowitz due to random room assignments. One night after a freestyle cipher at a college party, someone suggested that the two form a group. Their reply...... "Why Not!"
